This paper presents the Noun Morphological component of a Greek Natural Language Generation system which is based on a current system for English called IDAS. First, I describe the methodology that I followed in order to develop the Greek Lexicon and Grammar, using I1, IDAS's classification-based knowledge representation system. After presenting the basic aspects of I1 and the overall architecture of IDAS, I give an exposition of how classification is used in order to tackle the complex morphological system of the Greek noun and I describe the way that the proper realisation of Greek words is derived. On the basis of these examples, I conclude with an attempt to estimate the feasibility of using classification in order to create Natural Language Generation systems for other languages, on the basis of the existing English resources. Thus, the Greek Natural Language Generation system can be viewed as a contribution towards a multilingual IDAS, which sheds light on what parts of the generator are language independent and which are firmly based within a specific language domain.
